Chelsea ready to sign Saul Niguez permanently next summer on one condition

Saul Niguez joined Chelsea on loan on transfer deadline day with the Blues having an option to sign the midfielder permanently for £30million.

According to Standard Sport, Chelsea will sign Saul Niguez on a permanent basis if he can rediscover the form that made him one of the most sought-after talents in Europe.

The report also noted Chelsea’s refusal to sign Saul permanently during the summer shouldn’t be misread as a lack of interest in the 26-year-old.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was reportedly determined to add the Spanish midfielder to his Chelsea squad because he believed he would offer a new dimension and a top-class alternative to N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.

Tuchel believes Saul would be well-suited to his high-energy style having worked under the hugely-demanding Diego Simeone.
